TULSA, OK -- An early morning police chase turned into a standoff at a local apartment complex on Sunday.

It all started when an officer tried to stop a car near 71st and Lewis around 3 a.m. The driver took off leading police on a high speed chase through town.

Officers say the suspect threw bags of cocaine and marijuana out of the windows of the vehicle during the chase, until he finally pulled into the Deerfield Estates near 87th and Delaware.

Police say the suspect got out of his car, fired a shot at them and then fled into the apartment complex.

Police set-up a standoff outside the apartments, but the suspect still managed to escape.
